In what seems like tremendously pleasing news for them photography aficionados, Canon has made a camera equipped with a 250-megapixel (19,580 x 12,600) APS-H CMOS sensor. APS-H is a notch bigger than the APS-C commonly found in consumer DSLRs. By making a first of its kind gadget, the Japanese brand has managed to create a lull in the megapixel warfare of the circuit, for now.

With the ability to capture text on a plane eleven miles away, the company proposes the use of the camera for security and surveillance. Other than photography, the sensors are developed enough to capture videos around 30 times sharper than 4K at five frames per second. Equipped with a fast signal readout speed of 1.25 billion pixels a second, this is definitely big news for sensor technology.
